Have an 83 944 with 79000 original miles. Engine runs great, but I am recently hearing a metallic noise at 2900 rpm through 3050 rpm. It doesn't matter what gear I am in or even if the engine is under load. It abruptly goes away above 3050 rpm. Any ideas?

When was the last time timing belt was done or tension checked?

Try posting your question on Rennlist, a lot of good knowledge over there if you don't get a good response here.

4 weeks ago everything was replaced. Last week belt tension was checked and retensioned.
